Thyme-Infused Gravy

Real Simple NOVEMBER 2007

  • Yield: Makes 6 to 8 servings

Ingredients

  • Pan drippings from Classic Roast Turkey
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine (such as Sauvignon Blanc)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • 12 sprigs thyme

Preparation

Strain the pan drippings into a fat separator or large measuring cup. Let stand for 10 minutes.

Skim and discard the fat from the surface.

Place the empty roasting pan over 2 burners over medium-high heat. Add the wine and cook for 2 minutes, stirring and scraping to dissolve any bits stuck to the pan. Remove from heat and pour into the cup with the pan juices.

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle with the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Still stirring, slowly add the broth, then the reserved pan juices and sprigs of thyme. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Remove and discard the thyme before serving.
